It took me two attempts to see Paris. I was originally going to spend a few days there in 2008 as part of a trip to London but my plans were derailed by a fire in the Channel Tunnel. Two more years would pass before I realized my plans to see Paris at last. Coming off a month in Ireland, those five nights in Paris flew past in the blink of an eye, but it was an incredible experience.

I do not say it lightly as I adore some of the other cities I have visited over the years, but Paris is without a doubt the most photogenic place I have been. And I honestly cannot put my finger on the reason. Is it the relatively uniform height of the buildings that make up the historic core of Paris? The beautiful mix of historic architecture from French Renaissance straight through to Art Nouveau? Perhaps it is the landmark buildings like the Louvre, the iconic Eiffel Tower, and Notre Dame? Or maybe it is simply that I am describing the extensive recipe for a picturesque city such as Paris?

I am not sure what the explanation is, but I had some incredibly sunlight while I was there (in winter no less) and that combined with the scenic vistas that abound in Paris… well, the result is an incredibly catalog of Paris art prints that still boggle my mind. I am not sure that I have ever been so productive as an artist over the course of five nights anywhere.

And Paris is one of those photogenic cities that seems to call to artists everywhere. It is truly a challenge to find anything new to say about a city that has probably been painted and photographed from every angle imaginable. The fact that there is a sea of beautiful Paris artwork out there makes me so proud that my Paris prints have found an audience. It is definitely a compliment to my work as an artist every time someone choose my Paris prints to hang on their walls.

So thank you to my Paris art patrons past, present, and future!

Your interest in my artwork is most appreciated!

The art you decorate with is something that you will look at for years to come. This is true whether it is wall art for your home or a public space in your place of business. Paint colors may come and go, but the artwork often outlives the rest of your decor choices.

That is why I am more than happy to answer any of your questions. Whether you want to know more about a specific piece of art or have a more general question, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I love the opportunity to discuss the story behind my art as much as sharing helpful details.

I am also open to discussing any special requests you may have. Perhaps you have a special decorating challenge or need artwork tailored to fit a specific space? Or you have a special design opportunity to discuss?

Well, I have always enjoyed challenging projects, so just ask!
